Space exploration is dangerous ...

""It Felt Like An Earthquake": SpaceX Prototype Starship Blows Up In Massive Explosion Day Ahead Of Manned Launch" ... I was briefly involved with range safety at the end of my engineering career.  Rockets are explosive.  I suspect they left it fueled, instead of de-fueling it, after canceling the launch.  Solid rockets are safer (unless you are the Space Shuttle).

My bad.  Same model rocket, but not the one the astronauts were using.  That one lifted off fine ;-)
